Love this podcast

I started listening from the oldest on iTunes to the newest and I have officially finished them all. I listen to plenty of podcast and this and HMP are by far the best to relax listen and gain fun factual evidence on topics I love. So thank you for the great podcast and I look forward to anything new you put out.

Intriguing, informative, and entertaining!

I randomly came across this podcast a few weeks ago and it’s exactly what I’ve been looking for (I’ve already listened to most of the DC character shows). Bruce is extremely knowledgeable and brings on guests who are equally informed in comic book lore. Wether it’s a character that you love or a character you’ve never heard of, Bruce does a great job explaining the characters biography, history, influences among other information pertaining to whichever character he chooses. This show has quickly become one of my favorites. Keep up the good work and I’ll keep on listening!!!
P.S. Bruce, if you read this I would love to hear an episode on Tommy Monaghan, DC’s Hitman. I am a Garth Ennis freak!!! I really enjoy your episodes on the more obscure characters (the Spider Jerusalem, Tick, Howard the Duck, Animal Man, Jenny Sparks were amazing). Thanks for everything you do!

Hmm

Several factual issues with the Namor episode right from the introduction...didn’t finish because I don’t want unreliable information later on
